Brilliant!


You've passed the basic test and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!


Step Two


The Poker Basics test was easy right? Well, there's a lot more to learn on the road to becoming a profitable poker player.
Now study the Cash Game course and once you think you have it mastered have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

Let us know as soon as you have passed the Cash Game Quiz and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Thanks, I have a question.

In the cash game course here http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/art...urnament-poker

It says
Quote:
Here's another example. Let's say you hold KQ (hearts) on a board of J 5(hearts) T(spades) 2 (clubs). That means you have a flush draw and a straight draw.

On the turn the pot size is approximately 100 big blinds, and your opponent moves all in for his last 20 BB. You are now pretty sure that he holds a set, so you will need to hit one of your draws to win.

With 13 outs you have a winning chance of only about 25 per cent, but you need to risk relatively little to win a big pot.
I count a different number of outs can someone tell me where I'm going wrong.

13 hearts in the deck and 4 are out of the deck which leaves 9.
To hit our straight there are 4x9's or 4xA's = 8
= 17 outs.

I'm not sure if it's an error in the lesson, or if I misunderstood.

Thanks

It is 13 outs.

There are 7 outs to the flush because the Th and 2h give the opp a full house. 3 non-heart aces and 3 non-heart 9's are also outs.

Hi I've studied the cash game quiz and started it, but then realised i hadn't finished my studying so on the first question I closed the quiz. I already sat it once yesterday and it was telling me for a while I had to wait longer to take it. So I waited then I opened it and it started but I closed it to read my notes again.

When I started it again it says I have already passed a quiz recently and so can not take it, how do i sit the quiz?

Hi IsoOwnYou,


You must wait 24 hours between taking different quizzes and 6 hours between taking ad retrying the same quiz.


Good luck!
